Sure, she’s flaky and her designs were a little out there, but I was bummed to see Ping Wu go home on last week’s Project Runway. Why? Because she wasn’t scared to be true to herself and take risks. They didn’t always pay off, mind you, or keep the model’s bum covered, but …
Ping shared a few thoughts about Project Runway recently, and not surprisingly, she says Jesse, her partner in the challenge that got her sent packing, isn’t as innocent as he may appear.
“(Jesse) is a professional actor,” she said during a conference call last week. “I personally think he was craving for attention, screen time. What you saw on the screen, that’s not one percent of what’s going on. He made a soap opera out of nothing.”
And what about Megan, the chatty model who offered up the unsolicited design critique and made sure Ping stayed under the bus Jesse pitched her under? Ping suspects Megan and Jesse, who had worked together previously, were working together.
“For Megan to say (that Ping never fit the garment on her) that, from out of no where, its not making sense to me,” she says.
Let’s take bets about when the karma stick will smack Jesse upside the head. I’m hoping sooner rather than later.
